    If you had the vaccum forming machine I imagine it wouldn't be hard.In a shop class I used to be in we had one and I molded some letters with it but nothin big.the hardest part seems like making the solid mold for the Lexan to form over.
    Breakin out the old car with a new motor and more nitro!!!

    that part wouldnt be that hard. I was thinking I would use
    high density foam to get the basic shape then cover it with
    hot clay. I have used a vacume former but not with lexan.
    We used some kind of white plastic.
    This brings me to my next question.
    Where can I get a vacume former?
